Well I was wondering if Pioneer would ever "update" the EFX-1000 (not that I thought it needed to be updated but surprised that it has been around a lot longer than most of the gear in the line-up) and they did, I think...
Looks like a toy and considering how buttons and knobs get abused on these things, I hope they used quality parts.
Got to love the promo vid...
